ATLANTA – The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA), along with H.J. Russell and Place Properties, will celebrate the opening of the King Memorial transit-oriented development (TOD) on Friday, May 20, at 11 a.m.
The mixed-use TOD features Marchon, a community of 305 apartments and 11,000 square feet of office and retail space adjacent to King Memorial rail station and historic Oakland Cemetery.
“The pandemic prevented a groundbreaking event and we are excited to finally celebrate the opening of the King Memorial TOD and the Marchon community. This is a prime location near downtown Atlanta and one-third of the apartments in this development are affordable workforce housing convenient to transit,” said MARTA Interim General Manager and CEO Collie Greenwood.
